Super Red Ram Power

1955 Dodge 270 ci Hemi.

The motor chosen for this project was a rebuilt 1955 Dodge 270 ci Hemi. Not only does it provide all the horse-power this truck needs, it sounds beautifully brutal. Unlike the original flat-six, this motor puts the "Power" in Power Wagon.

It has forged Venolia pistons with cast chrome rings that provide a 9.5:1 compression ratio. Clay Smith cams give the stainless steel valves .424 of lift off the hardened seats using chrome-moly push rods. A 500 cfm Edelbrock carb tops the modified, stock 4 bbl manifold. The valve covers were powder coated and then hand lettered.
